MPL – CEC4: ARM 1.2GHz

Rugged Embedded Computer
with low power consumption

CEC4

The CEC4 expands the MPL Embedded Computer product range with a headless industrial solution. The CEC4 comes with 3 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The specifically designed CEC housing allows the CEC to operate in harsh environments without the need of fans or ventilation holes, and can easily be mounted on a 35mm DIN-Rail or with a flange on a wall. The compact housing offers sufficient space to add a SSD or SATA DOM, a 5-port switch (MAGBES) with copper only or mixed with fiber, or other peripherals. The CEC4 can be tailor made to your needs, even with IP67 housing and MIL connectors.

CEC4

The CEC4 expands the MPL Embedded Computer product range with a headless industrial solution. The CEC4 comes with 3 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The specifically designed CEC housing allows the CEC to operate in harsh environments without the need of fans or ventilation holes, and can easily be mounted on a 35mm DIN-Rail or with a flange on a wall. The compact housing offers sufficient space to add a SSD or SATA DOM, a 5-port switch (MAGBES) with copper only or mixed with fiber, or other peripherals. The CEC4 can be tailor made to your needs, even with IP67 housing and MIL connectors.

CEC Highlights

The operation temperature range is from -20°C to +60°C and optionally even -40°C to +85°C, certainly without fan or case openings. The internal miniPCIe slot allows various extensions (WLAN, GPRS…). Additional available are 3 USB connectors and a microSD Memory Card Slot for easy logging and/or configuration capabilities. The CEC4 can be customized over an optional backplane for additional interfaces.

  • Input voltage range (8 – 36VDC)
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • Extreme low power consumption
  • 3x Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Optional R232 interface to connect a console
  • completely cable-free (no internal wiring)

 

These features make the CEC4 to the ideal solution for headless rugged industrial and defense applications, where security, quality, reliability, low power consumption, and long-term availability are key. The CEC4 can be used just to name a few; for data logger, communications, gateways, etc..
